According to Google: NOTHING!
Which might explain why everyone was on a magic forum.

That was actually Mrs.M's 60th birthday and we had a superb surprise party with guests travelling from all over the UK to be there. Nothing to do with the TM statistics but I just wanted the universe to know that something was taking place that day. It would have been 1219 logged on if I'd been anywhere near a computer!

What a coincidence!

Thing is, if it was known that was the good lady's day then it might've just been 1200 incarnations of the delightful Mr Jennings popping along to say hello.

And if they were randomly assorted enough (which I somehow doubt) it was also the birthday of 3-4 of those 1218...

I think I may have an answer to this conundrum.

On July 9th 2011 Dynamo appeared on Scott Mills' radio show, he'd sent a sealed box some time before for safe keeping and said it contained a prediction. On the day of the show Scott was asked to choose from a large selection of that day's newspapers and he chose The Metro. The front page headline concerned a successful mountaineering event and had a picture of the mountaineer. When the sealed box was opened there was a hand drawn sketch of the same page, the same headline, a fairly accurate drawing of the mountaineer and even the small banner ads either side of the masthead were accurately sketched.

I'd guess that a lot of listeners were keen to find out how that effect was done and Googled for it - TM ranks highly in Google and other search engines.
